After numerous setbacks that caused him to miss the entire second half of last season and kept him sidelined throughout the offseason Jesse Crain is finally throwing again.

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports that Crain threw Monday and plans to do so again today and Friday as he prepares for spring training with the Astros.

Crain, who signed a one-year, $3.25 million deal to be Houston’s likely closer, told McTaggart that “nothing was bothering me” with his surgically repaired biceps and he’s “headed in the right direction.” However, he’ll definitely be behind the other pitchers in Astros camp and is no sure thing to be ready for Opening Day.

    Luckily he pitches for the Astros. So he will be able to get ready at the MLB level where winning games doesn’t matter.

      I thought you were going to say “Lucky he pitches for the Astros because it may be a few weeks into the season before they’ll have a save situation”.

    It’s good to see Denny’s son healthy again.
